I suggested a walk for our first date, turned out the place had no where to walk. Did a lap of the houses and road then went pub 😂 Almost a year together 😊

Dating, dating, dating, ... nope can't remember what that's like. Have i ever been on a date? mmm ... probably. Maybe i should try that some day.

The only free date stuff was a walk in a park 🙂 although it was a 6 years back... :( I need to get a date fast... 🤭

@Hannah Witton Some of my favorite 2-player board games for date nights have been Codenames Duet, Jaipur and Patchwork. Try them out! They have the added benefit of being really cheap.

Ooh gosh I love walks alot & I've had alot of deep talks to people. Think it's just cause it's just relaxing but also I'm kind of awkward for communicating so not having to look at someone is helpful 😁

I did the NYT questionnaire with a group of co-workers on all of our first day of work at a summer camp and we became best friends immediately. It was so fun and rewarding 🌸

Can you make out in a Museum.

I pulled out the 36 questions on a first date, not remembering that they were about love. Until he started to read them and got creeped out. Oops
Zoe Paatz (3 months ago)
My top tip for board games on an early date is play co-op games where you work together! You have a common goal so you build a connection when playing, and you don't have to show your sore loser side straight away :D

It’s not free, but there’s an app called Too good to go where you can get food from restaurants and cafes that’s left over at the end of the day. In my city, everything is less than £5 and you get a bunch of different stuff. I feel like that could be a cute date

My boyfriend and I really love to read with each other, so for example we'll read the Lackadaisy online comic and each do different voices for the different characters. It's so fun, highly recommend, especially when you're in a long term relationship and are super comfy with your person <3 also cooking together, I mean technically that's not free but you're gonna be cooking anyway - finding nice but cheap recipes and putting on some music is just great. These suggestions are great too; haven't had a movie marathon but we've had plenty of at-home film nights, and we went to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park which was amazing, andddd we made packed lunch to have while we were there c: we've been together for 2+ years, but I think it would be interesting to do the 36 questions with him, plus we can guess what the other person's answer would be!

These are excellent ideas!! I'm adding these to my date ideas list

Can you do an entire video on good two player games or games that are one player that you can enjoy together. It’s really hard to find two player board games.

ive been geocaching with a friend once (who is also co incidentally a fan of your channel) and oh shit what a great date that would be, you could easily go for a drink afterwards or something as well. some of these i'm literally going to use

As an aro/ace, I love free date ideas to take Myself out for some self care. Even stuff that’s not free like going to the movie theater or going out to dinner is great by yourself and sooop freeing. I’d recommend it to everyone honestly, even if you’re already in a relationship.

It's not exactly free, but since you have to eat, a cook at home date, two people raid their fridges and cook random food

You can sign up to be in the studio audience for radio or TV productions, either through the BBC or sites like SRO Audiences or Applause Store. I did this last week for "Simon Evans Goes to Market" on Radio 4 - it's pretty good as you effectively see all the outtakes (although there are fewer of these for radio as they can more easily splice things together)

Oh also in the U.S. there's a lot of museums you have to pay for but most of them have a free night once a week or at least once a month
amwoWOAH (3 months ago)
Also for college students who I know are usually broke along the same vein as eventbrite and movie marathons, most universities have some sort of free activity going on. So ask your class crush to go tie dye shirts or go to bingo night or go to swing dance night or go get a free pet fish! (these are all real things offered at my university but there were also midnight movie premieres, pizza crawls, etc)

For a date with my ex girlfriend I built a blanket fort (with fairy lights - the whole shabang) in my bedroom and we ate popcorn and watched each other favourite films I also love picnics, baking and (acc saddo dork here) teaching each other something- I love seeing what people are passionate about and I’ve had some fascinating conversations about people’s passion subject. Over all my favourite thing to do with my partner now is dance- blast music and just do whatever we want, whatever feels natural and we look like weirdos and end up making each other giggle endlessly- love love love

If you like music, there are often lots of free music festivals (sadly often limited to the summer months). Portsmouth is about an hour from me; and at the bandstand there is something on fairly frequently at the weekends. Food needs to be thought about, but it's one of the few places where you can take a BBQ...just don't go poisoning your date or cook a rib-eye for your vegan partner... :)
Shayna McCartney (4 months ago)
Super jealous that your museums are free! We have one day a month where a portion of the art museum is free. But I have paid over $30 per person to go to an art museum!

It's funny you ask about the NYT questionnaire. Me and my boyfriend went. through all the questions, when we had our second date 2½ years ago and I think it definitely gave our relationship a kick start because you learn so much about the other person. So yeah, great questions. Would recommend!!
TithenPen (4 months ago)
These were great ideas! My partner and i went out geocaching today based on your recommendation and had so much fun! new hobby for sure.
Clara OnTheRoad (4 months ago)
My girlfriend pulled out the 36 questions during our first date x) apparently it's also an app now that you can download on your phone, and she pulled it out and was like "do you want to give it a try ?" Not going to lie, I thought it was a bit too intense for a first date, also because we were both looking for something casual (haha) and it was 36 questions to fall in love, so I wasn't really sure where she was going for with it. But I played along, and we ended up finishing the questions on our second date. Five months later we're in a serious relationship and we love each other. I don't think it's thanks to these questions at all, but I do believe they can help get beyond the surface, especially if you're someone who has trouble opening up. It forced us both to be emotionally vulnerable on our first dates, which is pretty great. Also, these are all great ideas, thanks Hannah ! I had never heard of geocaching but this sounds like so much fun. Other idea which is really simple but cute: find a pretty landmark in your area that you haven't been to yet and go there for a picnic ! You cook something together (or one of you cook for the other and it's a surprise), and it's really nice to relax outside and chat
Emma Lukens (4 months ago)
great video hannah! cant wait to try these with my girlfriend! I actually did do the nyt q's on a first date but it was back when i was in the closet and it was with a guy so i didnt realize how freaked out he'd be! whoops!
FerretBug Rants (4 months ago)
free date ideas: picnic (bring food from home) make meal together go to thrift store and make an outfit for each other (if you're in a place to know sizes, and you don't have to buy!) learn a new skill together via a youtube tutorial (or a book from a library)
Anna de Boer (4 months ago)
I actually had a friends’ dinner once where we set everyone up with blind dates and my friends thought it’d be a cool social experiment to make my date and me do that love test 😂

My fiancé proposed by hiding a geocache with a note in saying IOU where the O was a ring! Loved hearing you explain what geocaching was, because every time I tell my proposal story I have to start with 'so, have you heard of geocaching? no, well let me explain'... >.<

I know it's not completely free since you need to pay for groceries, but cooking together! I love doing that as a friend date as well when I have a friend coming over, just go to the store, pick up some groceries and cook together. Great way to not have to stress about having food ready when they get there.
Tamara Epps (4 months ago)
Can you please do more date ideas you can do at home (such as game nights), for those of us who have difficulty going out due to disability or other reasons (such as those who can't leave the kids alone).
InfinityImane (4 months ago)
I've had a date once pull out that questionnaire, we were both pretty sure we weren't into each other but the questionnaire made it kind of fun actually. It was a fun first date but we didn't fall in love hahah
Perry Heun (4 months ago)
My partner and I have actually started Geocaching together since Valentine's Day this year. It's a blast!Though not technically free, we purchased a map of our metro area and have started crossing off parks we've gone to. As far as other ideas, going stargazing has been one of my favourite things we've done together. The only thing that costs money is the gas/other means to get you away from the city.
Anthony Miller (4 months ago)
My favorite date idea involves making a delicious meal with a beautiful woman while trying to keep my hands and lips off of her until the meal is made and consumed. A great exercise in patience and self-control. But, with a beautiful, red-haired, English lovely like you all bets would be off! I don't believe I could do it!

I've done the 36 questions on two first dates! It was definitely a great way to get to know someone, definitely doesn't guarantee falling in love though :P Went on a few more dates with one of the people, haven't spoken to the other one since

If you both like photography you can go and search cool places to take photos.
Zofia Bochenska (4 months ago)
Not entirely free, but much cheaper than the alternatives - cooking together or (bonus points for being super romantic) - a picnic! Much better for the budget than eating out. As for the entirely free ones, but definately for the later stages than the first date - if there is a book you both want to read (or one of you want to share your favourite book with the other) one of you can do it out loud. It isn't something easy to do for a long time, so maybe it would be better for a little ritual, not a full date idea? Anyway, it is free, assuming that you'd buy the book to read it yourself, or you already own it.

Now that my girlfriend and I live together we’ve been trying to figure out how to have more dates without breaking the bank - this video is so needed! We love game nights and have done a few movie marathons (lotr but not extended hah) and now I definitely want to do some home karaoke!! We also like to do cooking challenges - although it’s not totally free - we each get each other a secret ingredient or two and then have to come up with something using what we already have on hand.

Stargazing if it's nice outside! Also, if you are in a long distance relationship, there's this great website called rabb.it where you can watch a movie together while skyping using a service that you may already have like Hulu or Netflix.

Hahaaa my boyfriend was appalled when we first met that I'd never seen LOTR so for my birthday two weeks later he bought me the extended box set and forced me to watch them all... anyway five years later and we still like each other!

I did the 36 questions on the first date last December, we’ve been chatting for 2 weeks before we decided to meet up. And it was actually really nice, it kind of brought out all our childhood issues. (We didn’t really have great childhood memories lol) It’s very deep and very intrusive if not with someone you like enough tbh haha. It was nice, we got to know each other quiet well. We dated for 3 months but we broke up last Feb. It might be a queer girl thing but who knows. I am still quite going through it and remembering how much we shared back then is making me sad and I’m sorry I’m being whiny on the comments dang. HAHAHA But I just wanted to say that it’s a great date idea but you have to like someone enough or be respectful to each if you wanted to skip questions. Just have fun and if it’s too intense skip and laugh together. It may not have ended happily between us but that first date was really nice, we did the 36 questions at Manila bay waiting for the sun to go down, when we finished the sunset was beautiful and she kissed me on the cheek and it was some cheesy romantic thing and my lil gay heart was outta control. It was memorable to me and it might be memorable to other people if they did the questions too. Now I’ll just sob a little and get some wine to get through the rough memories. But I will def take note of all these ideas for when I’m ready to date again. Love u Hannah!

Amy G (4 months ago)
It’s not free but I find if you’re a simple dinner date kind of couple, it’s super easy to get stuck in restaurant ruts. So what my girlfriend and I do is what we called alphabet dates! We started in January with a restaurant one or both of us have never been to that starts with A. This past weekend we went on our D date and it’s been really fun so far. If we go every other week (or so), we’ll get to Z at the end of the year, so it’s perfect.

Cloud watching, star gazing, window shopping, mall walking, visit a local library, go to an auction (and leave your wallet at home), pretend to be a tourist and visit the local sights / go sight-seeing, go for a hike, or visit a free beach.

Go to a scenic location and draw things around you Go to the mall and don't buy anything - just make fun of things that are there (esp at the really overpriced, high fashion stores) Day at the lake/beach if there's one near by Play a sport-like thing (eg throw a ball around, frisbee, etc) Play music for each other Assemble a collection of random stuff from your houses (eg garbage, old knick nacks you dont' need anymore, maybe some cheap dollar store craft stuff, etc) and either have a friendly competition or work together to build things out of it and/or turn it into art This is a v low cost one, but make ornaments/decorations out of clay (you can make it w flour, olive oil, salt, and water, ask wikihow for recipe)

I think we ought to emphasize this point. It's important for two people in an established relationship to still date on at least a _weekly_ basis. It helps keep the relationship alive and healthy and prevents it from growing stale.

The great thing about homemade karaoke is your in the comfort of your (or someone you know's) home, and you could even leave the original singer playing, and have a contest to see who does the silliest lip syncing! This stuff is so my jam.
postboxcat (4 months ago)
Another idea for a free date - (depends if you have ingredients in your cupboard) bake a cake together! Perfect for cold weather days 🍰
